Constantly traveling around the world has become a daily routine for me, my personal lifestyle - you should know it by now. Being always on the move definitely affects my day-to-day beauty routine since I do not have the time to properly pamper myelf, yet I do need it most when traveling.
I am always between hotel rooms, cabs, airports, flights -- a life that makes me feel blessed and different than everyone else at the same time. Keeping up with a beauty routine that meets my standards is hard. It's a challenge to pamper myself on the go and look great while traveling for days.
Hair care is a special category when it comes to beauty. Working in difficult conditions almost 41.000 ft above the ground in different climates means that my hair needs special treatment to be their best self all the time.
Working under such circumstances doesn't mean I have an excuse to not look good. Excellence is a part of my job and a part of my everyday life -- my hair always have to look excellent; healthy, shiny and perfectly done.
With my life being like this, I have come to adopt a 'beauty manual', a routine I swear by in order to always look good. Kérastase has always been with me along this beauty journey, offering me the perfect solutions to meet my personalized on-the-go needs.
5 STEPS TO HAIR EXCELLENCE
Step 1: CHOOSING THE RIGHT HAIR PRODUCTS
I only choose the products designed specifically for my hair type since they best suit my needs. I try all Kérastase products at home and choose the ones best fitting each trip's varying needs., exactly as I would with my travel outfits.
Choosing the perfect products for each destinations is essential to me since being always on the go means that my hair needs extra care, especially in cold and dry climates. Reflection by Kérastase is the hair care collection I choose for climates like these since it is nourishing and offers extra protection while mainting long-lasting color and shine.

Step 2: HYDRATION, HYDRATION, HYDRATION!
My hair needs moisturizing and special care while traveling. Drinking water is essential to staying hydrated and looking fresh, especially after a long flight.
The bi-phase moisturizing oil-mist from the Aura Botanica hair collection contains 99% natural ingredients, coconut oil and argan oil protecting and nourishing my hair.

Step 3: AVOID HOT WATER
Your hair does not like heat. I am lucky enough to have sleek, straight hair without using heat but when it comes to washing my hair, well, I love hot water!
I try my best to avoid using hot water, giving my hair a chance to "breathe" while allowing my haircare products work their magic.
Step 4: THE MAGIC HAIR OIL SPRAY
My go-to airport bag features all my essentials, including my phone, passport, wallet, laptop, as well as, a hand cream and a nourishing hair oil spray. I use it every 3-4 hours to moisturize my hair whether I'm flying or I am on the ground. The 100ml bottle is effective -- it goes through security control without a problem -- and elegant all-in-one.
My favorite Elixir Ultime was the ideal choice for the sunny days by the beach at Cayman Islands -- the hot weather asked for extra hydration and nourishing to keep my hair looking great!

Step 5: HAIR MASK
My hair mask always travels with me. I could easily leave that extra pair of shoes behind in order to pack my hair mask in the suitcase instead. A Rain Shower with my favorite hair mask oozing cleanliness and exotic aromatic fragrances in the other side of the world doesn't really compare with anything else!

For most people traveling means simply getting from point A to B. It means disrupting their normal beauty routines when changing places and countries.But, for me, traveling is a wonderful beauty experience, an experience that offers me the chance to get to know myself better and pamper it the best way possible based on my needs.
